All-Girls Advantage


Beaumont students affirm research that an all-girls environment empowers young women to excel as students and leaders. As a member of the International Coalition of Girls' School, Beaumont challenges young women to develop their talents as they:

  • have greater academic achievement
  • score higher on college admissions tests
  • have higher confidence in STEM subject areas, including mathematics and computer skills 
  • feel more confident and empowered

90% feel supported by other students (vs. 73% of girls at coed schools)

95% of students in all-girls high schools feel supported by their teachers (vs. 84% of girls at coed schools)

83% feel supported by their school administrators (vs. 63% of girls at coed schools)

All-girls learning environments champion the educational needs of girls currently underrepresented in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) majors and careers.


Girls’ school graduates are 6 times more likely to consider majoring in math, science, and technology.
